Welcome to TweenCity!

This blog is designed to be a selection resource for children between the ages of 9-14, as well as a reader's advisory tool for both current and future librarians.

PLEASE NOTE: An appropriate age range is given for each title, however this is merely a suggestion. Children, especially tweens, read at many different levels which cannot be determined simply by age or grade level. Therefore, it is important to assess each child's reading level before suggesting titles. In addition, since this blog is designed for tweens only, some titles listed may also be appropriate for children older or younger than ages 9-14, but these ages will not be listed.

Ages 9-12: Elementary school level (Grades 3-6)
Ages 12-14: Middle school level (Grades 7-8)

Colfer, Eoin. Artemis Fowl. Hyperion Books, 2001. ISBN 978-1423124528. Ages 10-14.

Artemis Fowl is not your typical twelve-year-old. He’s a genius, for one, as well as a criminal mastermind. With his family’s wealth at his disposal, Artemis embarks on a mission to increase their fortune by exploiting the magical world of fairies and other creatures, known simply as the People. But Artemis is soon in over his head when he threatens the very balance between the People and the Mud People (humans) by kidnapping Captain Holly Short, a fairy and member of the LEPrecon Unit. How will his plan turn out? Read the book that started it all, and don’t miss the other six in the Artemis Fowl series, as well as the graphic novels based on the books.
